      Gives a good insight into beet production

      from

      The great thing about this place is that you can observe the whole process from planting to pickling.

      The owner, whilst not overtly friendly, was very helpful and offered to sell us his crossbow. We declined (as we already have one).

      I believe he may have a glass eye as I was not sure where to look.

      Bed & Breakfast Meets State Fair

      from

      This B&B is certainly unique. From the 7am recorder wake up calls to the dinner conversations on how to prevent bear attacks, to the moo-faced guy constantly wearing a tie all day long. My wife mentioned the guy wearing the tie is the owner, but he seemed to be constantly staring at us as if he was expecting us to steal the plastic-ware at breakfast.

      When you check in, be prepared to answer the question, "Are you the flasher?". It sounded bad, so we replied, 'no' which seemed to be the correct answer. Next, be prepared to have a metal detector wand passed over you. We were particularly confused by this since the owner kept referring to it as, "Gaydar".

      We stayed in the "Irrigation" room, which under any other circumstances I would consider the boiler room. It was decorated with odd awards to the effect of, "Outstanding Citizen Awards" which sound impressive until you notice that they were probably printed on someone's printer using Clipart images.

      I recommend staying here for no other reason than it's an interesting time. It's certainly one of those places you need to visit once, and you only need to visit once.

      Good luck,

      Matt

      Fact: Best Beet Farm stay ever

      from

      Fact: Schrute Farms is the only 60 acre beet farm that allows guests to perfect their hunting skills on the crossbow range.

      Greatly Improved Accomodations

      from

      As a returning guest to Schrute Farms, I must note the new bathrooms, which represent a notable improvement over what I can only call a quaint, yet poorly dug, outhouse, which was in use during my last visit. This upgrade notwithstanding, I was pleased to see that in lieu of the ersatz Amish quilts, ubiquitously seen in area B & Bs, guests at Schrute can still sleep in toasty comfort under layers of native pelts.

      Fine...if you like going to the bathroom under the porch!!

      from

      The owners (a man named Dwight and his cousin) are a bit odd, but nothing was as odd as the only bathroom...under the porch! A little warning would be nice. On the other hand, free use of paint ball guns and potato rifles were unexpectedly fun! Just be warned, the owner thinks he is a deputy sheriff and will watch you very closely.

      Trick or Treat

      from

      Looking for a different place to stay during the Autumn leaf peeping season-Try Schrute Farms B and B. The place has a rustic feel to it. Not your typical B and B. No Victorian bedrooms, no frills-reminded me of my younger days visiting my grandparent's farm. Twin Beds, large breakfast consisting of eggs (hard boiled) and bacon and milk (beets optional)-typical farm fare. Enjoyed Mose tour of beet farming and Dwight's down to earth practicallity made this an unexpected travel experience. The atmosphere tied in with Halloween (I felt I had been tricked into a romantic nonexistent atmosphere. But in the end-it turned out to be a treat) Yes, next year it'll back to Cape Cod for the foliage, but my trip to Schrute farm was something I'll never forget.

      Definitely will go back!

      from

      The best beet farm I've ever stayed at! Definitely recommended!

      Schrute Farms delivers!

      from

      The architecture reminds one of a quaint Tuscan beet farm, and the natural aroma of the beets drifts into the bedrooms and makes you dream of simpler times. You will never want to leave your room. The informative lecture will satisfy all your beet curiosity, and the dawn goose walk will tug at your heart strings. Table making never seemed so possible. Great story to tell your friends. Plenty of parking! The staff's attention to detail and devotion to cleanliness was limitless. From their enthusiastic welcome to the last wave good-bye, Schrute Farms delivers.

      Stay away - proprietor is crazy!

      from

      I have to warn people about the proprietor of Shrute Farms - he may portray himself as a gentleman farmer, but he is not what he seems!

      He killed my cat, sprinkles!!!

      Who knows what he might do to you or your loved ones....

      ... up on a hill with no drainage issues. Safe, bright and cheery. We unhooked Mr. Toad just as the skies opened up again with a thunderstorm of rain. We set up the satellite to record the Giants game and headed out to a local pizza place to get an easy warm meal. Then settled in to watch the baseball game till wee hours of the morning again as the constant rain beat down on roof, thankful we made the right decision.

Discuss with your doctor possible pain relievers if these cramps become severe. Be careful making sudden movements, especially after eating or when you first get up in the morning. Going for walks or other light exercise, even though you may not have much energy, can also be helpful. You do want ...

      Today was an average day. We had a late load in based on the long drive between venues, but it went relatively smoothly. The biggest difference between this and the last few venues is that this Amphitheater was a large circus tent type structure. On the front of stage of right, where we would normally store our equipment, there was nothing but gravel, making it a challenge to get equipment through. We were, however, able to get ...

      Today was the toughest day so far. Our target was to hit 50 miles which we just about got to. We climbed up through the mountains of Pensilvania, amounting to just short of 2000 feet of climbing. I never realise that many hills existed on earth, they ...
